What customers say about "Technical Specifications"
AMD FX-8350 8-Core Processor
  • The 8 cores make gaming and multitasking smooth and fluid. No task or operation slows it down or breaks its stride.
  • The AMD FX 8350 is a good upper range processor that does not take high wattage to run, nor does it require a liquid cooling solution as does the 9590. Reasonable and 8 cores at 125w running a 4.0g. not bad at all. A respectable processor that does not cost a bundle.
  • I was using the stock heat sink with the CPU and I would see some increase in temperature. After swapping that out with a Cooler Master Heat Sink it has reduced the heat generated well.
  • Easy to overclock, though I would not suggest going beyond 4.2ghz on the stock cooler. Temperatures(with stock cooler) range from 30-35c idle, to 50-65c on load at 4.2ghz OC(not turbo boost).
  • Runs very hot when running to capacity and will then slow down with the stock fan and heat sink supplied with the CPU.

What customers say about "Cache And Memory Specifications"
AMD FX-8350 8-Core Processor
  • Performance for the price, reliability, speed, good sized cache
  • This CPU is definitely powerful. The cores and cache are strong enough to handle single-threaded applications impressively
  • The CPU has a large cache which helps in performance
  • Plenty of L2 and L3 Cache, L2 Cache being shared by all cores of the CPU and L3 Cache is located further away than L2 which in turn makes it slower.
  • High benchmarks and the 8 cores with 16 MB cache really allow it to perform under large amounts of pressure.

  • The ASROCK X-Boost is enabled, which mildly overclocks to 118% (4.3GHz) with no problems. Love it.
